By doing European work experience, you are not only gaining invaluable experience but also putting your language skills into practice in real life situations. Working abroad will enhance your skills and help you to take the next step in your professional career whilst travelling. No matter your professional experience, if you have studied the language to A-level or equivalent, a Halsbury Work Experience Abroad is for you!
Work experience abroad is ideal if you’ve studied a language before and you’re looking to brush up on your language skills. We would recommend that you will have studied the language to AS level minimum to get the most out of the experience.
The length of the stay is very flexible. Many people just choose one week away while others choose three months or even longer. It depends on your plans and objectives.
Some people are already abroad when doing their placements and won’t require transport, but we can easily arrange both flights and destination-airport transfers if you require.
Depending on your plans we can arrange hotel bookings, help you find a hostel and in some cases we can even help you find a host family.
